"Julia Child and her two coauthors spent nine years writing “Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume One.” It took the Julia Child Foundation nearly the same amount of time to find a way to honor her. Now it has. The Julia Child Award will be given to an individual who has made a difference in the way Americans cook, eat, and drink through education, communication, innovation, and mentorship. In other words, someone much like Child herself."
